In 1866 Pope Pius IX entrusted the Redemptorists with the Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help to be placed at San Alfonso’s church in Rome. The Pope also gave the Redemptorists the mission, through this special Icon, of making Our Mother known throughout the world.
Today, Redemptorist churches remain faithful to this mission when every Tuesday we pray the Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help. Inspired by this world-wide effort to increase awareness of Our Mother, we now also offer you this web store.
We encourage you to engage with Mary over your morning coffee, to relax with her in your living room, to remember her while texting on your phone, and even to think of her when out shopping. We hope you will also place a poster image of Our Mother’s Icon in your home shrine, or any place where you pray. By carrying her Icon into your daily life, you become an evangelist of her love and mercy. Through this site we ask your help and support in making Our Mother of Perpetual Help known everywhere.
All donations from this site are used to continue the world-wide ministries of the Redemptorists, a religious congregation of Catholic priests and brothers founded in 1732 by St. Alphonsus Liguori. They are also keepers of the Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
